Title: The use of polyethylene powder to produce dust filters
Authors: Campbell, Mark T.
Issue Date: 1994
Publisher: © M.T. Campbell
Abstract: This project arose from the requirements of an industrial organisation, Dust Control Equipment Limited (D.C.E.) for an investigation into the process mechanism used by them to produce a sintered filter product. The filter product consisted of a core obtained by sintering two grades of polyethylene 60% ultra-high molecular weight (412) and 40% medium molecular weight (5010 - ground) into a corrugated form with a pore size of about 100 microns. The core was then coated with a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) based emulsion to create a permeable non - stick membrane a few microns thick with an average pore size of about 4 microns. The process had been licensed by D.C.E. from a German company Herding GmbH. [Continues.]
